Application Guideline How to submit Contact

Theme of the exhibition
The theme for this Open Call is "Fairy Tale". Artist is asked to create his/ her own narrative and expresses own Fairy Tale freely in any kinds of mediums.

A fairy tale is a fictional story that may feature folkloric characters such as fairies, goblins, elves, trolls, giants, and talking animals, and usually enchantments, often involving a far-fetched sequence of events. In modern-day parlance, the term is also used to describe something blessed with princesses, as in "fairy tale ending" (a happy ending) or "fairy tale romance", though not all fairy tales end happily. Colloquially, a "fairy tale" or "fairy story" can also mean any far-fetched story. In cultures where demons and witches are perceived as real, fairy tales may merge into legendary narratives, where the context is perceived by teller and hearers as having historical actuality. However, unlike legends and epics they usually do not contain more than superficial references to religion and actual places, persons, and events; they take place once upon a time rather than in actual times.

In this Open Call of "Fairy Tale", artist will have a freedom of how to translate the word and history of "Fairy Tale" and make it something original. Open for all mediums.

The exhibition is open to all artists, 18 year old or older, working and living in US. Work must be original and executed within the past three years.
